Bollywood is a place of fairy tale romances. We love to watch the sizzling chemistry between our favorite actors on screen and sometimes wish how lovely it would be if they had a chemistry off screen as well.
Many Bollywood celebrities fall in love and also fall out of love within a very short span of time breaking our faith in true love which is meant to last till eternity. Unlike such couples, here is a list of 10 successful Bollywood couples who found love in the industry and gave true meaning to the word ‘forever’ in their relationship.

No one thought that two personalities as different as Ajay Devgan and Kajol would fall for each other. But as they say, “opposites attract”.
